LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

I am shocked and appalled that I have been away so long – I had no idea how fast the days were going by.

I have spent a significant amount of time in the last 25 days attending school swimming galas, sports days, leavers assemblies, leavers parties, helping to decide what and supervising the making of teacher and friends’ gifts with my children. I am SO glad its the holidays!

The summer teacher’s gift is always a practical item handmade by the children. I like to think that handmade gifts are appreciated and looked back fondly on…
This year both gifts had the same theme. Youngest daughter decorated a wooden pencil box

Oldest daughter made a pencil roll. I’d forgotten how easy the pencil rolls are to make – all straight lines on the sewing machine. Now I want one of my own.

Maybe when I make one for me I’ll do a tutorial too. Watch this space!
